How to reset Windows 7 password without having to buy or download any external tools.


On the computer with the lost password, boot into DOS using a bootable CD or USB drive.  Once in DOS you can navigate to the boot hard drive, rename a couple of files on the boot drive to trick Windows and allowing you to get in to the DOS prompt from the login screen, then from DOS you can change the password using a DOS command.
